The Elk Point City Council met as the board of equalization Monday, March 16, but spent more time discussing the coronavirus than property valuations. Elk Point-Jefferson School Board member Sabrina Sayler was present, as the district’s representative for equalization.

City Administrator Derek Tuttle shared what he learned at a meeting with Union County Emergency Manager Andy Minihan March 13. (See county story above.) For now, Tuttle said the city offices will focus on hygiene and keeping staff separate. Staff are cross-trained so there will be someone to cover if an employee has to stay home. They’ll wipe down all hard surfaces every hour and try to limit direct contact with customers.
